more about the artist

Idris’s oil paintings are inspired by famous painters spanning several centuries, from Rococo and Impressionism, to Post-Impressionism and Surrealism. Impressionism interested him in particular, thanks to its nineteenth century beginnings as a reaction against industrialization, where it received harsh opposition from the art community in France.

Idris sees his work as a movement to reflect the technolization of our lives and to manipulate a sense of reality while re-contextualizing what is considered “normal.” They are mash-ups sometimes accented with post-impressionist explosions of colors and textures. Many of his works question and blur the boundaries and intersections between the real, unreal, and the semi-real; they are a profound artistic interpretation and an edgy reflection of our modern-day lifestyles and our obsession with desirable objects.
